Or suis je bien au pire de mes malheureulx jours:
mon cas fort trop sempire et me vont a rebours.
Et tout cela me font amours
don jendure grief martire.
Sy nay de vous aultre secours,
force sera que me retire.

Now I have plumbed the depths of my darkest days:
My woes press upon me; naught my suffering allays.
Love alone is to blame
And threatens my poor wits to craze.
Pray succour love's flame
Or see me go my ways.

Translation by Mick Swithinbank
